This tennis contest has so far been dominated by Andy Murray and they will once again go head to head this week in Paris.
There first match together all the way in 2006 was their closest to date, but since then Andy Murray has been the comfortable victor in all matches.
Their match at Wimbledon 2010 will be remembered much more for the before and after. Andy Murray delivered his well prepared bow along with Nieminen to the watching Queen on Centre Court before and after the match and both players even went on to meet the Queen immediately after their one hour and 42 minutes match had ended.
Jarkko Nieminen career is now drawing to an end. He has been a great professional over tennis life, he reached his highest rank of 13 in the world in 2006 and has captured 2 ATP tour titles including one in 2012 in Sydney. He should have won more having reached a further 10 finals over the years.
